Happy Thanksgiving!

What a wonderful holiday in the midst of dreary November. Not only do we have the opportunity to visit with friends and family, we get an eat-your-full, free-pass, no calorie-counting day! Now, I’ll have you know, my cooking is passible for my family 364 days a year, but come Thanksgiving, I leave the cooking to the masters. This year, my cousins Gwen and Sig are hosting the meal at their house. Gwen is an awesome cook! Umm, her crab dip appetizer, well, let’s just say, her meals start out tremendous and never dip down from there : ) My aunt Ona will also be contributing to the feast in her stellar cooking fashion. Me? I’ll bring something people won’t be afraid to eat — probably still in the store wrapping : )

Would Thanksgiving be a day of thanks, if we didn’t say what we’re thankful for? No way! So I’ll start with my list. Please feel free to add your own!

  1. For my loving family. Kara came home from college for the holiday and everyone is healthy, wealthy in love, and wise.
  2. For beautiful Colorado where I’m proud to call home.
  3. For God’s blessing on a writing career that teaches me something each time I write a word.
  4. For friends that offer the best kind of support — their unceasing love.
  5. For my husband. Without him, growing old wouldn’t be any fun.
  6. For an utterly enjoyable day job that makes me look forward to going to work everyday.
  7. For a warm house we can afford and bills that don’t exceed our income.
  8. For my loving parents who taught me the value of work and blessing of play.
  9. For my grandmother who nurtured and prayed over the seed of faith in my heart.
  10. For Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior, who loved me enough to die and rise again for me.

I could go on and on about the things I’m thankful for, but for anyone else, this would be boring. You only go around once in life, so live, laugh, and give praise!

Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank Him for all He has done. Philippians 4:6

Blessings to you this Thanksgiving Day!

(Word) Countdown to December 31st

November 23, 2008

I’ve been dragging my heels, but no more! I plan to complete my rough draft rewrite of Rough and Ready by Dec 31, 2008! Daunting task, you say? Not if I’m faithful. How can I call myself a writer if I don’t write?

Okay, this is a rough draft, so I’m aiming for 75,000 words for a projected finished length of 90,000.

Watch my side bar and measure my progress with me : ) I know we’re going into the holidays, but hey, what better time to proclaim God’s glory?

It’s Flu Season

My best laid plans of get ‘er done have been sidelined by the dread of the winter season — the flu. Now, what I just survived, is not the real flu where people die and everything. No it’s the kind that makes you miserable for 36 hours because really, all I need by my side is the bathroom and a comfy pillow, and yet, I can’t function enough to do anything but sleep! No computer, no crocheting, no reading. Even the TV had it’s visual moments inducing stomach gurgles and mad sprints.

Some say fight it and hang tough.
I say find a comfy couch, a compassionate Corgi, and non-corrosive Kleenex, turn on soul stirring music and just ride it out : )

Sure it looks easy…

I spent most of the afternoon brawling with Blogger and Photobucket. I am not the most computer literate apple in the bushel, and afternoons like this are frustrating reminders of that fact. It looks easy, doesn’t it? Just follow the template prompts and Voila! you should have a blog or website as shown in the marketing brochures.

Yeah, right.

Wailing my woes to the Seeker loop for support from my sisters, I whined enough to make all of us feel good : ) Camy Tang, in her infinite cyber hardware wisdom emailed a few simple steps and finally Voila!, just like in the marketing brochures : )

Anyway, take a look at the right of my blog and witness the fruits of my labor. My slideshow attempts to display my inspiration for Rough and Ready, Book One of my Circle D series. I’m doing a serious revamp of the plot and God has thrown some pretty good wrenches in my former okay plot to give the unexpected twists and turns. Well, they were unexpected to me, LOL.

I like it.

I hope you will soon, too : )

He won’t play with matches again. But Charity has a plan to turn up the heat, hoping to ignite the heart of the man she loves. And she always gets what she wants–one way or another.

  • guest speakers
  • brainstorming sessions
  • booksignings
  • fellowship
  • Anything else that comes up : )
